    Human Cloning: Genetic Advancement or Genetic Manipulation? Some people might argue that the real offense would be to hinder the progress of science and experimental investigation with regard to human cloning. That to do so would mean to deny the right to scientifically explore and gain from such. Exploration and discovery in advanced technologies and science quite often proves to be beneficial to mankind; however, even though human cloning capabilities may tempt man's inherently diabolical God-...
  • Just Clone The Organs

    Cloning Duplicating of genes and DNA... Cloning? Cloning is basically the reproduction of cells. You take an unfertilized cell, combine it with a cell from the same organism and create a new living cell. The question is... is cloning OK? Is the breeding of a bigger and meatier cow and fresher healthier potatoes equal to cloning a person? Many different groups debate upon these questions. Religious groups argue that God created all, and he thrives on diversity. This diversity is being threatened ...
  • Mad Cow Disease And Clone
    803 words
    Cloning It all started as science fiction, something along the lines of pod people. Then this small branch in science fiction grows to be a very popular idea. Then real scientists start believe that it would be possible to clone someone. Finally it happens this small idea of science fiction becomes real with the first clone, Dolly the sheep, but now people are thinking that this might not be such a good idea. Cloning has many great possibilities and shouldnt be stopped because it may seem immora...

    The most recent discoveries and researches in the field of genetics: DNA cloning I am a biology major student at Brooklyn College, and of course I am interested in the most recent discoveries in biosciences, particularly in genetics and DNA cloning. A lot of us heard about cloned sheep Dolly and other cloned animals, and I decided to find out, with help of the Internet, how this process was accomplished in general and what is the future of this kind of experiments and researches. Also, I tried t...
  • Cloning Of Animals
    750 words
    Cloning is one area of genetics that is advancing very rapidly, and it is therefore very controversial. A clone is a group of genetically identical cells descended from a single ancestor. A clone is made up of plasmids, groups of identical structures, that contain genetic material such as mitochondria and chloroplasts. Plasmids are found in bacteria and yeasts. The bacteria in yeasts are combined with an animal or plant genes that allow scientists to produce identical copies of the gene. Cloning...
  • Mammary Cell Genes
    539 words
    Cloning of Animals On Sunday, February 23, 1997, Scottish researchers broke one of nature's greatest laws by cloning a lamb from a single cell of an adult ewe. This breakthrough opens the door to the possibility for the cloning of other mammals including humans. This remarkable achievement is being looked at as a great advancement in animal agriculture. But this achievement could lead to ethical questions of standard. Researchers lead by Ian Wilmot of the Roslin Institute in Midlothian, Scotland...
  • Cloning Of Human Beings And Animals
    2,683 words
    With the technological knowledge in the world growing from day to day, there is no way to predict where science may lead us in the future. Just a few years ago, cloning was something of a fictional nature that most scientists had thought about, but never seriously considered it as an experiment. Recently, animals have been cloned, and cloning has become no less than true reality. In a few more years, the knowledge on how to clone humans could be present. Before that advancement arrives, we need ...
  • Human Cloning In Today's Society
    1,578 words
    Human Cloning: Are You For or Against It? In today's society there are many new technological advances in science that have allowed us as humans to recreate some of life's essentials, people and animals. In the new modern age of science there has been much controversy over this sensitive subject. For example, why should anyone have the right to clone another human being for their own benefit? Or perhaps even on animals? Others may argue that human cloning should be used in order to better ones l...
  • Dna Cloning The Terms Recombinant Dna Technology
    2,748 words
    Introduction The possibility of human cloning, raised when Scottish scientists at Roslin Institute created the much-celebrated sheep 'Dolly' (Nature 385,810-13, 1997), aroused worldwide interest and concern because of its scientific and ethical implications. The feat, cited by Science magazine as the breakthrough of 1997, also generated uncertainty over the meaning of 'cloning' -- an umbrella term traditionally used by scientists to describe different processes for duplicating biological materia...
  • Profitable To Farmers To Clone Their Animals
    1,413 words
    CLONING: HAS SCIENCE GONE TOO FAR INTRODUCTION For years the subject of cloning has captured the imaginations of authors, movie directors and much of the human population. Cloning is the prospect of creating an animal or even a person that is genetically identical to its "parent". Until recently the subject seemed farfetched and fictional, because no one really realized how close we had actually advanced in cloning research. It was during February of 1997 that an embryologist, Dr. Ian Wilmut, an...
  • Cloning Of Endangered Species
    365 words
    This article, "Cloning Noah's Ark", is about the cloning of endangered species to prevent some animals from disappearing from the planet. The three authors of this article were Robert P. Lanza, Betsy L. Dresser and PhilipDamiani. According to Scientific American, they all share an interest in reproductive biology and animals. Lanza, the vice president of medical and scientific development at Advanced Cell Technology (ACT) in Worcester, Massachusetts, founded the South Meadow Pond and Wildlife As...
  • Cloned Animals
    718 words
    Did you know that on a random survey of seventh graders in FEB only 12% knew that there was a cloned lamb named Polly that contains a human gene! I intend to persuade the audience that this world should use cloning. Dolly was the first clone of an adult mammal and then Polly was another test, but with a human gene. And also, did you know that if we just had one sheep, or one duck, or one pigeon, or one anything, we could have a whole herd of that animal with the new genetic engineering called cl...
  • Dna Clone
    794 words
    Many people say that everyone in the world has a twin. Today, science and technology has the ability to make this myth reality through the process of cloning. I am strongly against cloning for many reasons. People should not utilize cloning because it would destroy individuality and uniqueness, cause overpopulation, animal cruelty, it is against morals and ethics, and it violates many religious beliefs. In order to strongly argue against cloning, there must be an understanding of its process and...
  • Human Clone
    1,147 words
    Cloning is Coming Cloning has become one of the most controversial issues of the century. Cloned animals have proven that it can be done and that the next step would be a cloned human. To many this would be a unethical practice but others see it as a breakthrough in science. Human cloning is very controversial because many are scared of what they don t understand. I am writing this so more people understand the pros and cons of cloning. Many don t ask questions of whether or not a cloned human w...
  • Clone Of The Animal The Quiescencial Nucleus
    878 words
    ANIMAL CLONING AT A GLANCE GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF GENETIC TECHNOLOGY Genetic Engineering is the process of directly altering an organism's DNA. Scientists have been directly working with DNA since the 1950's. Or so I m led to believe. However the most important discoveries in the field of genetic engineering have been made in the past 24 years. Genetic engineering is now used to alter the DNA of plants, animals and bacteria. Some ways biologists are able to manipulate DNA are: through using rest...

To Philosophy Cloning Is the World Ready Human Genetic Cloning it has been titled Breakthrough of the Year, in my opinion, it should be titled Confusion of the Year, as this is the hottest debate in the Senate to date (BBC). This particular science is the creation of living organisms, derived from another organism through an asexual reproductive process. The question to b...
  • Clone Prize Animals
    818 words
    In old science fiction movies people were cloned be being put into a chamber, some one pushes a button, and then an exact copy of the person is made. Cloning takes a much longer time to work because the clone has to be born. Cloning is heavily debated, is able to be done in different ways, can be done to many animals, has many uses, and has an interesting history. Cloning is a word that has been around for a long time. A clone refers to one or more offspring derived from a single ancestor, whose...
  • Experience With Reproductive Cloning In Animals
    374 words
    "A total ban should be placed on human reproductive cloning aimed at creating a child". This comment is backed by a National Academies' report that considered only the scientific and medical aspects of this emotional and controversial issue. Based on experience with reproductive cloning in animals, the report concluded that human reproductive cloning would be dangerous both for the woman and the newborn and would more than likely fail. The study panel did not address the issue of whether human r...
  • Scientific Research And Advancement In Biotechnology
    566 words
    Cloning can be defined as the production of a group of genetically identical cells or organisms, derived from a single individual. Those who support this procedure of making humans contend that it will help people who are finding it difficult to conceive. Others charge that cloning is good and sound science that will lead to many scientific discoveries - some of which might help in the cure of diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and diabetes. Cloning sounds like a great idea with many promis...
  • Ability To Clone Humans
    572 words
    Anti-Cloning Research: To those against it, cloning presents as much a moral problem as a technical problem. For them, cloning is an affront to religious sensibilities; it seems like "playing God", and interfering with the natural process. There are, of course, more logical objections, regarding susceptibility to disease, expense, and diversity. Others are worried about the abuses of cloning. Cloning appears to be a powerful force that can be exploited to produce horrendous results. Their basic ...
